    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    Yeah I refuse to be the cog that needs to pay for inflation just so these big companies can keep pushing these same promises of profits to their stock holders

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    As mentioned his ORIGINAL claim to fame was being the guy who talked about tech for NCIX, never watched myself, but the guy basically parlayed that experience to do it himself. Then like other youtube channels, like Hardware Unboxed, he got more and views which allowed "the algorithm" to put...

    Almost 4pm PDT here and it looks like the 3070 FE is still available, not exactly sure since need to "get in line" but hey it's better than seeing a grey "sold out" button... although yeah could be unavailable in 250miles.

    Riot Games to start recording Valorant voice chats starting July 13

    Was it all done "anonymously" too without any fear of repercussions if you went too far or if someone wanted to shut you up? That said, lots of things were done back then that are worse than what we expect today, bullying, hazing, giving sexual consent, "boys being boys", etc, doesn't mean...

    Riot Games to start recording Valorant voice chats starting July 13

    But when I watch Youtube videos I'm not in any way sending the information in the first place, so yeah you're right I would be upset if they all of a sudden had video or audio of me. When you play games, you're sending your "information" to them which then gets redirected to others. The...

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    It gets a little more complicated than that, as companies who make these games do not have an unlimited budget to draw from to produce games and very well may need those additional "pre-order funds" to finish the game at least the spit shine and polish aspect. I'm not talking about a company...

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    The other angle is some games simply don't go on sale because the developers feel that a game costs what it does and shouldn't be discounted just because of age. One example is a game Distant Worlds: Universe (real time 4x type space game), I think it was released in 2014(?) and never hit a...

    DEAD - ARRMA RC 1/8 Typhon 6S V5 4WD BLX Buggy $399.99 (Regularly $549.99)

    Just means it was a different vendor who was selling it for that price, once they were sold out next man up wasnt giving as much of a discount

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Thanks, but if I'm buying used cards it's not going to be at the high end just to help mitigate the risk a bit. And yeah people still trying to get retail from used are fairly delusional.

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    I'd buy a GPU from a miner, but then again the value I put on it is a fraction of original MSRP, it seems that "used cards" are still selling for above MSRP levels which I personally don't feel like their worth and I'd say the fact I can easily snatch a used card up shows that as true.

    I'm sorry why should they have cancelled these other models? Because everyone should pay an extra premium on the "ultra" models? Out of morbid curiosity I checked the price of the one that was cancelled for me (3070 black, as it was barely over actual MSRP when I hopped in the queue), saw...

    Yeah I got the one for the 08G-P5-3751-KR (3070 version), completely forgot I was in the queue for that I want to say for well over a year... but hey EVGA was happily sending products to it's big name retailers.

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    What's your definition of progress? Having your equipment becoming less valuable over time? I mean how many have cursed/moaned/etc when they bought a piece of computer equipment (or anything for that matter) and a month later it drops in price? It's a neat little window into the...

    New EU rule will require all phones and electronics to use a standard charger

    Every man needs a four pack - flashlights 10 bucks shipped

    Seems reasonable, even though at night it tends to be quite annoying/painful as a driver :) That said I was thinking more of the handheld ones, part of me thinks that all these light companies regardless of how it's made simply buy the same "standard" circuit board design, one click, low...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Also mentioned a key nugget in the video that "each build they find ways to 'patch' the exploit" so this isn't one of those things "oh all you have to do is click 'I don't have or want an account'" bottom line is you will need an account at some point which is 100% the problem.

    Yeah having your rebate disappear because the company that the vendor hires to deal with rebates does some shady shit is one thing, but the vendor should still honor the rebate if you reach out to them.

    New EU rule will require all phones and electronics to use a standard charger

    I mean I got a 5 year old phone, the back glass is cracked (which idiot designer thought glass for the back was a good idea?), the USB port hasn't worked in 4 years, and the battery doesnt hold charge for shit these days. The last one is the major reason I'm even considering an upgrade, a...

    New EU rule will require all phones and electronics to use a standard charger

    I gotta say that I chuckled a bit about the claim to reduce ewaste for the charging cord of devices that often are replaced every 2 maybe 3 years because companies have made replacing things like batteries prohibitively difficult

    Yeah what is the reasoning behind the stobe on virtually all led flashlights? Is it supposed to act as a blinding defensive thing? Or is it use as an emergency signaling type of thing?

    Starlink avail now for RVs

    So what's fundamentally different between the "RV version" and the home version? Looking at the page it seems it's more geared towards a temporary service, and I'm guessing isn't useable while in transit?

    I'd imagine that isn't a standard feature in all cards. Wouldn't surprise me if either a) user error bent the pins or b) Newegg repackaged returns (with bent pins).

    The Department of Justice Revised the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act to Permit Good-Faith Computer Security Research

    Are they going against him personally? Or the position he holds? if it's the later it's just a matter of funneling tax payer money from regular citizens to him and his lawyer(s), if it's the former... well they'll probably also try to get the tax payers to pay for it in some way. Either way if...

    That or a mixture of either those who have held out for non-inflated prices (me), and those who realize the 40 series is "just around the corner' so why should they pay 20% over MSRP on a 1.5 year old card that's about to be "obsolete"
